Join your neighbors and Family Promise of Beaverton by Putting the Brakes on Homelessness in Beaverton! For one night only, come Drive In - Sleep Out with us June 10th at the Beaverton Fountain Park. You can participate in one of two ways. Commit to spend the night in your car to raise awareness and money to help end family homelessness in Beaverton. We understand that not everyone is able to sleep in their car overnight, no worries! The second option is to become a Backseat Driver and participate in the event with the option of going home when we turn in for the night.
Please ask friends, family, and others in the community to pledge a flat amount to support you, the Driver, and Family Promise. Drivers can have passengers come along for the ride and help raise funds too. Register your car for just $25. We encourage Drivers and their team of passengers to raise $100 in pledges, however we'd get really revved up if your car brings in more than that. Prizes will be given for the cars that raise the most money. Food, games, music and a movie in the park will kick your fun into overdrive! Funds raised will go to support Family Promise of Beaverton*.
Last year, over 1,600 students in the Beaverton School District were affected by housing instability or found themselves without any shelter at all. Please help families take a U-Turn toward success in an effort to make sure every student has the stability they need.
